ALLEGIANT

And the big news are here! Veronica Roth has shared through USA Today the official Title of Book 3. It will be called…

ALLEGIANT

Watch Veronica herself release the news here and if you’re curious, we have looked up a few definitions of ‘Allegiant’:

adjective

1.Loyal; faithful.

noun

2. A faithful follower; adherent: allegiants of religious cults.

adjective
3. Steadfast in devotion (especially to your lawful monarch or government);

Surprisingly, this title doesn’t end with “ENT” like expected because of Divergent and Insurgent, but it does offer great insight to the content of Book 3… or should I say, Allegiant. Loyal and faithful seem to be present in all definitions. This could mean SO many things. Will Tris be faithful to her family, her faction, her past? Caleb? Four? We can only wait and see! But we finally know the title that opens up so much new insight yet so many questions!

Let the countdown begin for Allegiant… Only 187 more days!

Update: Check out the awesome article from USA Today below:

Allegiant! That’s the title of the conclusion to Veronica Roth’s best-selling Divergent trilogy, Roth announces in this video.

The young adult series stars teenage Tris Prior and is set in dystopian Chicago. In Allegiant, which goes on sale Oct. 22 from HarperCollins, Tris faces impossible choices about where her loyalties lie and how she will live in the world beyond the walls of her dystopian Chicago.

The first book in the series, Divergent (2011), peaked at No. 31 on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling books list and the second, Insurgent (2012), reached No. 10.

About the new title, “You gotta have the -ent (ending),'” Roth, 24, told USA TODAY’s Brian Truitt when he interviewed her about Insurgent last year. Roth has jokingly been referring to Divergent book No. 3 on her blog with the title Detergent. The Divergent trilogy was purchased when Roth was still in college at Northwestern.

Fans will soon be able to show their allegiance at the box office. The Divergent movie started filming in Chicago in this month and stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) and Kate Winslet. It’s directed by Neil Burger and will be released by Summit Entertainment (Twilight).

So, Divergent fans, what do you think?
